A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any regular hard disk. The reason is that an HDD uses spinning disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, at the same time an SDD employs modules of flash memory, hence there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives a recommended solution if speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases employed for the Operating System on a home PC and for storing data that is accessed often on servers. Numerous providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on hard-disks, but they use several SSDs to cache the more often used data and as a result, the data loads faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased as their disks have to spin less frequently in order to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Website Hosting

We use exclusively SSDs on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform and we've eliminated all HDDs on the production servers so as to offer improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, e-mails and databases. Thus, all the content you upload to your cloud website hosting account will be accessible very quickly. In order to enhance the performance of the sites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs that function only as cache - our system stores repeatedly accessed content on them and upgrades it without delay. We use such a configuration to ensure that resource-demanding Internet sites do not affect the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other websites can also take advantage of the speed which the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, due to the fact that the load on the main drives is reduced, their lifespan will be longer, that is one more guarantee for the safety and integrity of your data.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register for one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, we'll hold your content on SSD drives and this is valid not only for the files, but also for all the databases and email messages. Thus, your script-driven apps and webmail will load very fast. We use dedicated SSDs for caching too. Traffic-intensive content is duplicated automatically on these drives, so we ensure that a few heavy websites which generate a considerable amount of reading and writing processes will not influence the other sites which share the same drive. By reducing the overall load we also boost the lifespan of the primary storage drives and decrease the potential for a disk failure, so by employing SSD drives for caching purposes, we add an additional level of security for your content.
